I don't really see that as contentious - nor a bad thing!, just reality.
For a LTR women are hard wired to value "security" and if they can't provide it for themselves then they want it from the fella and in the modern age that is mostly provided by (and defined by) money - whether folks of both genders like it or not (in ye olden days a large club was the big thing
The million(?!) dollar question is how both
parties handle that issue..........IMO pretending it is not a reality a bad move. But, as always, YMMV.
There also seems to be a direct relationship between their looks and the amount of wealth they are looking for. I've also noticed a very strange thing in that as women age, instead of going grey, they turn blonde and get bigger boobs
I was going to leave this second part well alone - but can't resist
Selling a new(ish!) boat is easier to a newbie offering a blank cheque (even if an IOU on future earnings), warm dreams and wide eyes than selling a boat with a few miles under the keel
to someone who has learnt from own experiance that even a good boat is not cost free (even when surveyed
) and that some do
turn into an expensive dissapointment. or a project
.........despite claims to the contrary at the getgo.
Of course it takes some folks a while to realise that they are both no longer selling shiney new nor selling to the gullible - and that they are sitting on depreciating assets, which have already depreciated
. and some folks never learn.......
